Carnival Cruise Triumph has More Troubles

Posted: Updated:
MOBILE, Ala. -

Another disaster for the Carnival Triumph. An unexpected surge of high winds strong enough to snap the ropes holding the cruise ship in place, sent it sailing to the other side of the Mobile River.

The warden of Mobile Metro Jail watched the situation unfold alongside other city leaders who had gathered for an annual luncheon nearby at the Convention Center.

"The police chief was right next to us we made sure he knew about it," said Warden Trey Oliver.

People along the shore watched in horror as the massive vessel swung out of control. The stern of the boat suffered a large gash after smashing into a army corp of engineers ship.

"I think this boats cursed or something," said one bystander.
